I wanted a rich pumpkin pie last year for Thanksgiving and so put this recipe into action. A year later its the rest of the family that is itching for a beautifully rich pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving!
The pie is easy to make and while you will receive compliments from everyone . . . beware that you are about to add to your own work load each year. Hopefully, it will still be worth making the pie year after year.
